First Eucharist Retreat: Saturday April 1st

Dear Second Grade Parents:

Our First Eucharist Retreat will be this Saturday, April 1 from 11 AM-12:30 PM (Orange, Green, Peacock and St. Patrick School) and 1 PM- 2:30 PM (Purple, Yellow, Home School, Lime Green and Red).

At this retreat we will hear a Bible story, learn about the mass and how to receive communion, and practice our First Eucharist song.  We will also be working on your child’s First Communion Banner.  Please bring felt letters (any size or color) with which to write your child’s name on the banner.  Feel free to bring other items (sequins, jewels, etc) to “bling” your banner!  Below you will find an image of a completed banner.  The Eucharist symbols are self-stick and included in each kit, which will be provided at the retreat.  At the end of the retreat you will take your banner home.  Please bring it back to us on your child’s rehearsal date.

As a service to our families, we will have a Gift Table set up at the retreat on Saturday.  We will display items available for purchase which would make suitable First Communion gifts.  These have been loaned to us by The Prospect Hill Company of Brockton, MA.  You may browse the gift table before and after each retreat.  You may place an order and pay for it by cash or check only, made out to St. Patrick’s ParishThe orders will be available for you to pick up at your child’s Communion Rehearsal.

Lastly, please remember that there is a mandatory rehearsal for First Communion.  Each second grader and a guardian must attend the rehearsal designated for their mass time (see below).
